Iran says mothers can visit 3 jailed Americans
TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's foreign minister is confirming that the mothers of 3 Americans arrested along the Iraqi border in July will be allowed to visit them in a Tehran prison.

Manouchehr Mottaki said on state television late Monday that the Iranian government has ordered its U.N. mission in New York to issue visas to the mothers.

Manouchehr Mottaki says Iran made the decision on humanitarian grounds. Iran has accused Shane Bauer, Sarah Shourd and Josh Fattal of illegal border crossing, espionage and having links to U.S. intelligence. Their relatives and the U.S. government have left without the spying accusations and called for their release.
